Extend California's last call to 4 a.m.? Some say no

A news conference was planned Thursday at Los Angeles City Hall by those opposed to extending California's last call at bars and restaurants.

Senate Bill 384 would give bars, nightclubs and restaurants the ability to serve drinks until 4 a.m. instead of the current time of 2 a.m.

Councilman Paul Koretz will join health and safety advocates at the news conference, who say extending the last call time would result in more alcohol-related problems and impose more burden on law enforcement.

Senate Bill 384 would not force all communities to extend the hours, but gives them the choice to do so.
